BESIDE THE SEA

NOW TRADED
Made this for the Mermaid theme on TMTA
and as you can probably see had quite a lot of fun with it! The background is chalk inks and watercolours, the sea water is an offcut of scrapbook paper, and the image is from an Artchix collage sheet. For some reason I decided she should have wings too - if anyone can explain that do get in touch! I tried to spray the whole thing with gold Glimmer Mist, but that affected the lettering. However I decided that the "run in the wash" effect on the lettering was entirely appropriate if it had been in the sea .... and if you want to swap for this just shout!
